House Morrighan Poppy Bralette
I've been going back and forth about bra-making for a while now. On one hand, wanting to delve into lingerie sewing and bramaking to hopefully find a unicorn bra that fits well and is comfy. On the other hand, I've also been intimidated by all the specialty findings and do-dads you need for this activity...

Caftans and Cocktails!
I hope you’re all ready for a bit of frivolity… I know I am!
Loni, of Havin’ Sew Much Fun fame, and I are teaming up for a high-fun, low-pressure sewing and socializing event for the summer: Caftans and Cocktails. If anything can take your mind off the current craziness in the world it’s dressing up in a bright, oversize swooshy dress and pouring yourself a drink.
